While AMC has made a name for themselves with shows such as Mad Men and Breaking Bad, their most commercially successful venture remains the graphic novel adaptation The Walking Dead. Currently in its sixth season and already renewed for a seventh, the series has already spawned a spinoff, and now AMC will be returning to the world of graphic novels for its next series.
Titled Preacher, the series is based on the Vertigo comic series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, joining The CW’s adaptation of the Vertigo comic series iZombie on the small screen. Breaking Bad‘s Sam Catlin will be working alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to develop the series, with Dominic Cooper taking on the lead role, joined by Ruth Negga, Joe Gilgun, Ian Colletti, and Lucy Griffiths. The first trailer for the series, along with a teaser, has now been released, and can be seen below.
